Bono has waded into the European Union debate by telling US politicians they should be “be worried” about Britain cutting ties with Brussels.
The U2 frontman yesterday urged members of Congress to confront an “existential threat” to Europe not since since the 1940s.
He claimed the continent faces a wave of “hyper-nationalism” before warning that Britons could vote to leave the EU on June 23.
The rock legend, best known for 1987 hit With Or Without You, said: “This is unthinkable stuff. And you should be very nervous in America about it.”
He added: “Europe is America’s most important ally since the Second World War.
“Are we not your most important ally in the fight against violent extremism? This should really matter to you. I know it does.”
And he bizarrely claimed extremist groups such as Islamic State could be defeated by comedians such as Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen.
